The following day we went to a Vide Grenier (car-boot sale). I couldn't resist buying the Captain for a euro. I asked the seller what the Captain's name was. She thought for a moment, scratched her head, clearly thinking 'zees English are zo crazy' and came up with "Lucien".
And it dawned upon me that Captain Lucien can wear the badge, with pride and honour, on The Boat For My Potplants.
It all sounds a bit mad, but then dafter things have been known to happen at sea.
